Agency History

The Texas State Comptroller's Office was created in 1835 by Texas' provisional government and renewed by each constitution. The present office of the comptroller was created by the Texas Constitution of 1876 (Article IV, Sections 1 and 23) and is responsible for collecting state revenue, tracking state expenditures, and monitoring the financial condition of the state. The comptroller was popularly elected for a two-year term until a constitutional amendment in 1972 lengthened the term to four years (Senate Joint Resolution 1, 62nd Texas Legislature, Regular Session). The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts is the state's chief fiscal officer, bookkeeper and economic forecaster. The agency issues approximately 8 million checks a year to meet state agency payrolls and to pay the state's bills. The primary duty of the Comptroller's Office is to collect 26 state taxes, including sales, corporate franchise, motor fuels, motor vehicle sales, oil and natural gas production, and inheritance taxes. The office has field offices in 25 cities equipped to take applications for tax permits and licenses and to make sure delinquent taxpayers bring their accounts up to date. Comptroller auditors regularly check taxpayers' books to ensure compliance with the laws, visiting businesses ranging from small Texas grocers to Fortune 500 corporations in Texas and other states.

The comptroller is required by law to provide the legislature with a sworn statement showing the financial condition of the state at the end of each fiscal year and an estimate of probable revenue for the coming fiscal year. The Texas Constitution limits the amount that the legislature may spend to the amount of revenue the comptroller certifies as available for each biennium. The agency also evaluates spending bills in the legislature to determine if enough money will be available to meet the budget. In addition, the Comptroller's Office ensures that state agencies stay within their budgets and are developing uniform state accounting and payroll systems to improve the efficiency of all state financial operations. Among its divisions, the Local Government Division helps Texas cities and counties in handling state funds and in budgeting, bookkeeping, cash management, and purchasing procedures, while the Economic Development Division provides information about federal and state grant opportunities, distributes data about local economies, and helps businesses find purchasing and training opportunities. The Research Division studies and reports on all sectors and geographic regions of the Texas economy. Finally, the Comptroller's Office helps taxpayers comply with state tax laws and stay abreast of changes in the law.

On September 1, 1996, the Office of the Comptroller assumed the function of the abolished State Treasury Department and the Treasury Department's Unclaimed Property Program, thus making the Comptroller responsible for depositing and investing state funds, paying state warrants, administering and enforcing the state's cigarette and tobacco tax laws, and attempting to return abandoned property to its owners.

Scope and Contents of the Records

The Texas State Comptroller's Office is responsible for collecting state revenue, tracking state expenditures, and monitoring the financial condition of the state. These records document those duties, representing activities of the various division directors, the deputy comptrollers, and comptrollers Bob Bullock (1975-1991), John Sharp (1991-1999), Carole Keeton Rylander Strayhorn (1999-2007), and Susan Combs (2007-2015). These records consist of correspondence, memorandums, reports, speeches, clippings, invitations, thank-you notes, computer printouts, press releases, and other administrative documents, dating 1973-2000, bulk 1973-1988, as maintained by the Executive Administration Division of the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts.

Many of the records were generated and collected by the Executive Administration Division of the Comptroller's Office under the leadership of Comptroller Bob Bullock. Some materials consist of administrative files concerning each of the 13 divisions of the Comptroller's Office. Central correspondence files include correspondence from members of the general public, organizations, elected and appointed public officials, and staff (especially heads) of state agencies. Topics include interpretations of tax laws and Comptroller's Office policies, complaints against tax rules, requests for changes in existing tax laws, attempted resolutions of tax problems, suggestions for improving the state's fiscal situation, letters of appreciation, and routine internal matters. Reports include materials on taxes, tax rates, comparisons of Texas taxes with those of other states, comparisons of Texas' statistics with other nations, creation of an internal "think tank," internships, public school funding and education, audits, and internal accomplishments. Additionally, the records contain some of Bullock's campaign speeches for the office of Comptroller. Speeches were given to the state Democratic convention, trade and labor union organizations, the Texas Legislature and legislative committees, business groups, church congregations, colleges and universities, and local civic groups.

To prepare this preliminary inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.

This finding aid describes the records of only one unit of the Texas Comptroller's Office.
